Due to the gradual expansion of one of the schools and old electrical services tripping, a new substation connection, mains upgrade and new metering was required. We designed, procured and oversaw the works.
Schools require all their works to be done out of hours and in school holidays, therefore they have to be planned and carried out within strict timeframes as well as budgets. The works were performed over a three week Christmas break period, and included a very tight schedule of ground works, electrical works and redecoration to ensure the school would be open for the first day of term.
More recently we designed and oversaw the installation of a large PV array, to help the school cut their base load running costs and their carbon emissions. This has helped the school with their commitment to reduce their impact on the environment and gives them a practical and educational discussion piece, which will leave a lasting impression on the children.
In 2015 we were part of the team developing an administration block and undercroft within the school, a project that included all mechanical and electrical services. We had a very tight brief to design and get contractors to change over boilers and install a new innovative lighting scheme. The development included a green wall, rainwater harvesting and LED lighting throughout. We also developed the BREEAM pre assessment and energy modelling.
